Phenol Derivatives Market: Overview
The market for phenol derivatives witnessed massive slowdown in its progress as a result of the spread of Covid-19 pandemic across the globe. The level of demand declined to the extreme level due to lockdown creating hurdles for the key players operating in this market. However as recovery commences in 2021, major players are recuperating their positions through production expansion, capacity utilizations and online selling in 2021 keeping in view the covid-19 norms.
Leading corporations including LG Chemical Ltd., INEOS, Midas Pharma, The Dow Chemical Company, Royal Dutch Shell, Mitsui Chemicals, Rheinmetall Waffe Munition and others are making high investments in the establishment of research institutes in different regions to come up with improvements in their offerings. They are adopting business strategies such as sales contracts, strategic alliances, acquiring technical expertise, product approvals, patents and events, joint ventures, partnership agreements, collaborations, digital marketing, mergers and acquisitions, capacity utilisations, technological advancements etc to lead the global market for phenol derivatives solvent with largest market share.
For instance, LG Chem obtained Korea's international eco-friendly certification. ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) Plus for the production of bio balanced products produced with the help of renewable plant-based raw materials. This certification enables LG Chem to use nine types of bio balanced products used in diapers, IT devices, home appliances, and electric vehicle parts. In addition to this, LG Chem recently announced the launch of 6 new types of Y-solution products and Renewal YVOIRE, which has a new syringe, named ASIST-Y, with a non-slip material applied to the area the hand touches, in April 2021. Asia Pacific region is expected to show a significant growth owing to the emergence of new players and focus on eco-friendly and highly sustainable products in developing countries.
